Hi,

I am applicant from India; received my interview call a couple of days back for round 3.

I had interviwed for Cornell in round one and was dinged. I did an Alum interview and I think did not have the best interview experience. The alum doubted everything I said and cross questioned. Moreover, he has gone to school after some 9-10 years of work ex and therefore kept insisting that I, with a work of 4 years at matriculation, was too young and did not have enough managerial experience. That fact that he graduated in 2009 and was little unhappy with what he got from the market and had to return to India, made him ask weird questions about what if Cornell did not fulfill my expectations etc.

In all I did not enjoy the interview and was kind of put off by his attitude and was almost certain that I was not getting a call from the school.

I am sure I do not want to repeat such an experience; I would want to speak to someone who is keen on exploring positives as well and engage in a more encouraging discussion. I am open to question but not open to be interrogated.


In the light of my experience, I want to ask you guys out here do you think adcom interviews are more on a positive note.

Please help me with deciding who to interview: the adcom or a local alum once again and if that matters.

Also, is anyone flying to UNC for the interview?

I will appreciate any help on this.

Thanks

Hey,
Is it worth applying R4? How much harder is it to get in R4? I have owned a marketing company for 6 years, GMAT 650, GPA 3.5. This is very limited information but do I have better than a 30% chance to get in?
Thanks

I have heard that the final round, particularly at a 4 or 5 round school, is the toughest to get into. Not only do your credentials have to be on the higher end of the 80% range, but you also have to explain in an interview why you waited so long to apply to their school. It's hard to claim that said school is your #1 choice when you've obviously applied to other schools in previous rounds.

Again... that's just what I've heard. But, it seems logical to me.

Hello All,

I applied for the R3 (01/07) and got an interview invitation on 01/09. I called up the admissions to clarify some doubts and I also asked about who gets the interview invites. They told me that they go through applications which are in progress and filter out high potential candidates and invite them to interview so that the applicants get more time.

In my case the GMAT is only 650 and I have not posted my GPA since I was not awarded in the usual GPA scale. So I guess someone must have manually gone through the applications and then flagged me for interview. I am not sure if this is the case and what to make out of it. But anyways I think it is a good sign.

I am interviewing on campus on 01/28.

Hi,

Sorry to hear about that experience with the Cornell alum =(

I interviewed off-campus (in Los Angeles) with Adcom. It was a normal experience, no hard questioning, very standard questions in my opinion. So, I think if you go with Alum instead, they tend to be less predictable in terms of what they'll ask. They receive training/questions beforehand, but I think some Alum ignore that and just ask whatever they want. The upside is that those conversations tend to be more interesting, and if you do well, your evaluation will stand out to the admissions committee. So - it's a toss-up. Me, I don't like unpredictability, so I went with the Adcom.

I personally didn't visit the campus, didn't really see a need. Sure, they look favorably upon it, but I don't think someone would have a huge advantage over someone else if they flew into Chapel Hill vs. doing it locally like I did. I really only visited once I got my acceptance and went to Experience Weekend.
